“He (Bawumia) is coming to give hope for everyone,” He said.
When asked by TV3 Correspondent Evans Inkoom whether he has heard recent attacks on the Vice President’s economic strategy by Kennedy Agyapong, Ayew Afriyie said the focus of such attacks should be Ken Ofori-Atta
“Then I will say he (Kennedy Agyapong) should direct attacks to the Minister of Finance,” he said.
“Yes and when he (Bawumia) is in charge he is taking us to the promised land. He (Kennedy) should attack the finance minister. No. Not him (Bawumia)”.
